The Lake Washington PTSA Council began its scholarship program over 35 years ago to assist graduating seniors with their college education. In 1990, district staff scholarships were added to help defray continuing education costs.
Funding for these scholarships comes from two places: the 44 PTAs and PTSAs in Lake Washington School District through an annual donation and generous support from people just like you that purchase auction items or donate directly.
While we cannot meet in person this year for a live event, we are excited for you to view the wide array of experiences from the comfort of your own home. We will be adding items for you to preview this week.
If you do not wish to bid on the experiences, you can also support LWPTSA scholarships by adding a direct donation of any amount by clicking on the yellow DONATE button at the bottom of this page.
The website will go live at 8 pm on Tuesday, November 10 for bidding. All bidding will close at 8 pm on Wednesday, December 2.
Thank you in advance for your generosity in supporting LWPTSA scholarships! Your donations allow us to continue our tradition of giving scholarships.
